In this short, the very new (then) art of slow motion and heat photography are explored. One wonders how people must have felt when they first observed dandelions growing on the screen in front of their very eyes. A lot of trick photography is shown, and how they do it, and you've got to hand it to them for showing 'for the first time in motion pictures, the warmth of a handshake!"
